Everyday Life

Ava is cute as can be, busy as can be, and many times stubborn as can be. Saturday night every time I tried to put her to bed she threw a huge fit. I finally got her to sleep at 11:00 PM. That makes me want to throw a fit, so I worked on a little scrap booking and she "painted" with water. She loves to do this and it kept her occupied for about 45 minutes. I think that's a pretty good attention span for 15 months old.
The other day Ashlyn dressed as a ladybug (Ava's Halloween costume) and Alyssa dressed as a princess. Ashlyn pretended to be Alyssa pet ladybug for almost 2 hours. They play dress up almost everyday. I think it's cute and creative, but sometimes the mess drives me a little crazy!

Ava weighed 23.4 pounds and has 31 1/2 inches tall at her 15 month appointment. That's just a little above average. We still call her our "fat" baby though because she has the cutest little belly and leg rolls. Here she is busy pushing her baby in the stroller just like her big sisters. Ava doesn't talk much yet, but she's communicates want she wants quite well. She says Dada and Mama but only when she's mad, and she says "heyo" when she pretends to talk on the phone. She did manage to dial 911 on Friday, so we got a friendly policeman visit. Mostly she looks at what she wants, holds her hands out palms up, and says "uh". Lately she's added hitting herself on the chest after the "uh" and says "me".
